We were there and we went from not having a match at the event to being called and told that 'oh hey, you know, you're probably going to have a quick little thing with The Rock and it's going to turn into a match between you and him.' I was like oh sweet. And the it was going to be this and I went 'oh ok, oh well.' You go from not having anything to do on the show to having a thing with The Rock in front of . You can't be upset about that it's The Rock and it's in front of a hundred thousand people there. That itself was an experience.
